Critics’ Choice Awards predictions: ‘American Hustle’ will win six, ‘Gravity’ five …

At Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Award,  we are predicting that “American Hustle” will win six of its leading 13 nominations: Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), Original Screenplay, Makeup & Hair as well as Ensemble, Comedy Film and Comedy Actress (Amy Adams).

Our collective opinion — based on the predictions of our Experts, EditorsTop 24 Users predicting last year’s winners and All Users — expects “Gravity” to prevail in five of its 10 races: Director, Cinematography, Editing, Score and Visual Effects.  

And we predict that “12 Years a Slave” will come out on top in just three of its 13 bids: Picture, Actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Adapted Screenplay.

One thought on “Critics’ Choice Awards predictions: ‘American Hustle’ will win six, ‘Gravity’ five …

  1. They should definitely do away with the “comedy” categories. Or if they want to honor the oft-overlooked comedies, then they should disqualify the films and performers in these categories if they make it to the overall categories. If American Hustle, Amy Adams and Leonardo DiCaprio are nominated in the overall films, they should not be mentioned in the comedy categories. 1) they are automatically going to to take the comedy awards, and 2) it’s unfair because they have double the chance of winning.
